Stamps, Ink, Paper (SIP)

, , , , , ,

Welcome to November, friends! This week the Sisters In Stamping are taking a SIP, keeping things simple with just Stamps, Ink, and Paper. It’s funny, but while this is intended to be simple it was quite a challenge to NOT use embellishments or tools like the Big Shot and punches!

I made it work, though, and created this color block card featuring an image from In The Meadow stamp set.  This color-blocking technique makes the project feel like there are more layers than in reality.

SIP / stamps-ink-paper / Color blocking / In The Meadow stamp set / Stampin' Up! / StampinBlessings.wordpress.com

I used various clear block sizes to stamp the color blocks on Whisper White card stock.  The colors are Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party, and Daffodil Delight. The clear blocks used are A, B, C, and H.

SIP / stamps-ink-paper / Color blocking / In The Meadow stamp set / Stampin' Up! / StampinBlessings.wordpress.com

When stamping, I used Flirty Flamingo and Pool Party at full strength, but stamped-off once for the Daffodil Delight to ensure it didn’t overpower the other colors.  I also used Jet Black Stazon Ink for my trees and sentiment.

I applied the stamped cardstock to a layer of Flirty Flamingo Envelope Paper and used Stampin’ Dimentionals to pop it off a Pool Party card base.

CASE It and Change It!

Tags

, ,

One of the easiest ways to get your creative mojo flowing is to find something beautiful and CASE it.  For those of you new to this term, CASE means to Copy And Share Everything.  Today, the Sisters In Stamping challenge was to find a card in the SU! catalog and CASE it, but incorporate some sort of change.

The card layout I used is found on page 13 and uses the Birthday Blooms stamp set.  I love the simplicity of the card layouts used in this year’s catalog – very trendy and easy to reproduce!ibc-pg13-caseFor my version of this card, I decided to go with a combination of images from the Flower Shop and Pop of Paradise stamp sets.  And although it’s already fall, I just had to use some summery colors – Certainly Celery, Flirty Flamingo, and Melon Mambo.

Pop of Paradise stamp set / Flower Shop stamp set / CASE card with modifications / Stampin' Up! 2016-2017 catalog CASE / StampinBlessings.wordpress.com

I “randomly” stamped the flowers and leaves on a plain piece of Whisper White card stock to give it a designer series paper appearance. This style is perfect for a one-sheet-wonder technique!

The Flirty Flamingo flowers are stamped on at full strength, while the leaves are stamped-off first so that they didn’t dominate the paper.  Then I mixed up the Melon Mambo flowers to be full strength on some, and stamped-off on others. This style is perfect for a one-sheet-wonder technique!

Usually, when I place a layered card front on my base, I trim the sides so that there is a 1/8″ border showing on each side.  This particular layout only trims down the top and bottom portions, which I think is a very nice change.  This layer is even more pronounced by the fact that it is elevated by Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Looking at this card now, I wish I had used Certainly Celery card stock for the oval sentiment piece.  Yesterday it was nice, but now I’m not a fan of the ink distressed look with this particular layout…what do you think?

If you are interested in recreating this card yourself, here are the supplies you will need.

Fancy Folds and Beautiful Paper

Tags

, , , , ,

For the month of October, Stampin’ Up! is offering an amazing sale on our beautiful Designer Series Paper.  This promotion is one of my favorites, since I tend to use a lot more DSP in the Fall making Christmas gifts.

Buy 3 Get 1 Free

To highlight all the wonderful DSP we have to offer, the Sisters In Stamping decided to share inspirational projects featuring these beautiful papers.  For my project, I let the paper do all the talking – no sentiment or greeting necessary!  I decided to focus on the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper and a fancy fold.

Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper / Fancy Folds / Drapery Fold / Stampin' Up! / StampinBlessings.wordpress.com

I’ve seen this Drapery Fold technique all over social media in the stamping and crafting world.  This is the first time I’ve tried it, and I LOVE IT!  It is so easy and fun…and you get the pleasure of seeing both sides of the DSP.

Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper / Fancy Folds / Drapery Fold / Stampin' Up! / StampinBlessings.wordpress.com

The basics of this technique is to take a long strip of DSP and cut a diagonal section off the bottom to allow the folds to layer.  By scoring and folding in 1″ to 1-1/2″ sections, you will get this beautiful drapery look – thus the technique name!

Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper / Fancy Folds / Drapery Fold / Stampin' Up! / StampinBlessings.wordpress.com

I really didn’t want to complicate this project with a sentiment or other stamped images, so I just layered on the paper and tied a pretty bow with our Organza Ribbon.  I’m so glad this ribbon has stayed around for so long.  It truly is one of my favorites!

Here are the products used for this project. If you would like to recreate this card, simply click the link or photo below to place your order:

Jennifer
